The Miami Heat dropped Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series to the Chicago Bulls on Monday.

The NBA’s reigning MVP LeBron James still put together a few highlights.

James posted 24 points,eight rebounds and seven assists in Miami’s 93-86 defeat.

Closing out games with authority has become a Heat trademark.

On Monday, Miami looked every bit like a team that has not played in eight days during the final moments of the game.

The Heat held a three-point lead with two minutes left. The Bulls shifted into another gear and went on a 10-0 run to seal the game. The Bulls had a trio of stars that solidified the win.

Nate Robinson scored 27 points, Jimmy Butler doubled-doubled with 21 points and 14 rebounds and Joakim Noah added 13 points for Chicago. Game 2 is Wednesday night in Miami.

Watch LeBron stuff the hoop off a deflected pass.
